Trimble Navigation Limited

Corporate Profile

Trimble sees a growing convergence over the next 5–10 years among the fields of land survey, mapping and GIS, and aerial mapping as data processing and expertise are moving into the field. Driving this convergence is the ability to rapidly obtain accurate geospatial data from a variety of sources, including digital imaging, scanning, and GNSS+inertial systems. Rapidly converting this data into answers is the key.

To meet this challenge, Trimble is focused on developing unique technology, solutions and services for the acquisition and exploitation of geospatial data. Trimble’s solutions streamline the capture and maintenance of high-accuracy as-built models from the planning phase, through design and construction, to the subsequent maintenance phase—delivering significant improvements in productivity. This same capability enables the creation of baseline models and post-event updates for emergency rapid response, disaster management, and security applications.

Trimble provides hardware and software for aerial and land mobile mapping, including ruggedized aerial metric cameras and complete turn-key camera/laser scanner systems for airplanes, helicopters, trucks, boats, and other manned and unmanned vehicles.

Trimble’s software provides complete workflows for extracting answers rapidly. The addition of eCognition image analysis software to Trimble’s portfolio of solutions empowers you to develop unique solutions for virtually any geospatial application.
